Heckle-in

On 8 November, the day the Israeli government announced hundreds of new Jewish-only housing units in East Jerusalem, young Jews interrupted Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu as he addressed the Jewish Federations of North America in New Orleans.

Five members of the Young Leadership Institute of Jewish Voice for Peace stood up to hold placards and shout protests denouncing the occupation, settlements and the new Israeli oath of allegiance as betraying Jewish values.

The activists were later released without charge.
